5 There is only one editor! Emacs has been my favourite for over 30 years

5 You can find a better editor for a particular programming language. You won't find a better one if you use multiple languages.

1 Dude no, use VIM instead. Emacs is evil and will give you ass cancer.

5 slime, org-mode, supports everything under the sun -- with common, but customizable keybindings, extensible and thoroughly hypertextual.. what could _possibly_ be better?

5 First app I install in a new distribution. If you write code, it's worth the effort to learn.

5 Once you know how to properly use Emacs, anything else feels very substandard.

5 A lot more than just an editor. It's amazing the variety of things you can do with Emacs, give it a try.

2 Well... if you want a geeky editor, why not use vim?

5 a text editor that is just about its own OS. Org-mode is the the geekiest way to customize GTD with plain text. Built in scripts to manage TODOs and time tracking within an outline so the actions are within the context

5 Learnd to use Emacs in scool programming C++/Lisp/ADA or anything else, it's ASUM, but for smaller edits I often use NANO in terminal or gedit.

5 Great text editor! From time to time I do try other editors. But, inevitably, I keep returning to Emacs.

5 Emacs is one of the best editors that I've run across, simply because it is so extensible. If you are used to emacs but familiar with vim, you can emable viper-mode to get similar keybindings.

5 Like Eurochriskelly said, steep learning curve, but once you know it, you can do almost anything in it.

5 Steep learning curve before it becomes worthwhile to use but worth the investment if you plan on sticking with programming for a few years. Not installed by default on most systems so learn vi (or nano) too!
